This class runs on Saturday 28th April 10:30am - 5:00pm
The classic New York Beauty block made modern by mixing circles and ovals. In this class you'll be using Jenny's Drunkard's Path templates and FPP (foundation paper piecing) pattern. You'll learn how to cut, sew and press perfect curves using Jenny's no-pin technique. You will also learn how to use the FPP technique. Make a start on Jenny's Oval NYB Quilt or design your own with the help of your tutor.
Fabric allowance depending on which project you want to make but six fat quarters will make you a cot quilt or cushion. This design is also perfect for those larger scraps (3"-10" squares).
Not suitable for complete beginners.
About Jenny: A Swedish exile having spent the previous 18 years in Hackney, Jenny Haynes (née Nilsson) studied Pattern Cutting and Tailoring in her native Stockholm. Soon after, she followed her passion for fabrics and moved to London to study Fashion and Textiles at the London College of Fashion. She went on to develop her own label 'Papper, Sax, Sten' (that's 'Paper, Scissors, Stone' if you're wondering!), working with textiles that reflect these different influences. Her bespoke quilts and furnishings are recognised for their clean and simple, mid-century modern design. Often mixing vintage fabrics with modern prints, rich colours with pastels, wool and silk with linen and cotton, while remaining faithful to her Scandinavian roots. This was recognised in 2015 when Jenny was invited by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, along with 18 other Swedish designers, to be a part of Heal's Swedish Summer Exhibition. Heal's having a long history of promoting Swedish design with exhibitions in 1923, '51 and '71. More recently Jenny has contributed to the much anticipated book "Patchworking & Quilting: A Maker’s Guide" published by Thames and Hudson for the V&A, available to by in October 2017.
